Keeping bathroom clean may not be such a great problem, but keeping it fresh is a whole other thing. Moisture in bathroom can make garbage, dirty laundry and even towels give off musty odor that can be hard to get rid off. There are a few tricks that will help you keep bathroom fresh and clean, though.

Tips On Keeping Bathroom Fresh & Clean

Clean bathroom once or twice a week to make sure it doesn’t get too dirty, as then it would be harder to clean. Wipe all surfaces with damp cloth to remove dust, water and hair. Vacuum the floors to remove dust balls and debris and wash them with damp cloth. For a more thorough cleaning you can use detergent or vinegar to clean floors as well as walls. Make sure to give a bathtub and a toilet proper cleaning and finish off by spraying air freshener.


To maintain your bathroom be sure to cover the lid of the toilet when flushing, to prevent contaminated water splashing all over the room. It will not only keep your bathroom cleaner but will also keep it fresh.

Doing laundry regularly can also help prevent foul smells in the bathroom. Air dry your towels to prevent musty smell. And make sure to dispose of garbage as often as possible.

Freshness Tricks

To keep your bathroom fresh for longer may not be that easy but it’s not impossible. First of all, though, make sure that your bathroom is properly ventilated, otherwise, it will be very hard keeping it smelling fresh. If your bathroom has windows open them after every shower to quickly get rid of vapor and moist air. This will help prevent mildew and musty smell. If there are no windows, open a door for a little while.

Using a diffuser can help keep bathroom always smelling a certain way, depending on the scent you choose. It’s also a great substitute for a scented candle, which may cause safety issues.

Use a bowl of baking soda to absorb odors from the bathroom. Keep it in the room at all times and change soda once a month. If you just want to add a pleasant scent to your bathroom consider a potpourri.
